    There is not going to be a 2019 Type R. I don't know why everyone thinks now that the car finally arrived here in the Usa 2 years ago that Honda is going to keep making that model now, won't happen I can tell you that much and if they do make a batch of them again it will be a few years from now. I know someone very high up in the Honda Motors Corp and I will tell you this much only.

    I'd think if Honda knew there wouldn't be a 2019, they'll shout it out ASAP so people would quit bitching about the ADM. Maybe even pay more ADM.

    Uh-huh. Is that why my local dealer has been allocated a 2019 for August delivery?

    My experience with this kind of statement is that … it will come as a 2019.

    Is it a coincidence that there happens to be a Rock Hill Honda in South Carolina?

    Why are you lying? They are absolutely coming to Canada. I suppose I can cut you some slack as you may have been mislead but you got bad info.

    You wouldn’t want to bet on that? If you remember Honda talked about variants. I have seen those yet.

    Since it's a global platform the VINs that specify different trim levels are more than likely for trim levels outside of the U.S. that's my best guess.

    I'm higher up in sales at my dealership and have access to the iN and a vehicles status/locator. The truth is that the 2019 Civic Type R's aren't even an option to choose from, and Civic Si's have been updated and give a 2019 option to search for. So it's not looking good for a 2019 product year as far as current available info.

    With that being said, there are still no other civics that allow for a 2019 search option besides Si. So it very well could be updated and eventually show 2019 at some point for all civics which could include the Type R. I'm just going off of current available information. I'm pretty sure the current Type R's that are entering production will be sold as 2018 models. Not 2019. It'll be interesting to see how long Honda runs these for in the States.

    Pics for reference of what I'm talking about. You can see which vehicles the years pertain to to by looking above the highlighted green area in the background.

    My dealer could be bullshitting me but I asked a sales manager if it would be a 2018 or 2019 specifically. He said 2019 CW.

    Your dealer might just not really know and is used to August cars being the next model year or saw the price increase. I just picked mine up 3 weeks ago and the dealer told me it was a 2019 until I questioned it and he actually checked and it was obviously 2018 in June. He just assumed it was 2019 because he saw the price jump.

    Time will tell.

    I can't imagine Honda killing off the FK8 after only a year and a half, unless sales are really that disappointing. I know they took a loss on the DC2 ITR but even that one lasted 5 years. I wonder how the other Type R variants did throughout the years.

    Can you elaborate on the price jump? How much are they now?

    Honda has already sold more FK8s than any other previous Type R model ever sold. It would be against the brand’s history, legacy, etc to wring out maximal profits and continue selling the FK8 after the demand has cooled and cars languish on lots for months like many of the competitors. I am merely speculating, but would be surprised if the FK8 lives on long after the buzz dies down and is surpassed in both performance and market demand by it’s rivals (ala S2000 and NSX).
